Georgetown led by as many as 20 points in the first half but Butler battled back, forcing overtime on Sean McDermott's game-tying basket in the final second of regulation.

The two sides traded buckets in the first overtime period and were tied 83-83 after five extra minutes.

With the game tied at 89 and just over nine seconds left on the game clock, Martin used a screen, turned the corner and sank a high-arcing floater off the glass to give Butler the win. He finished with a game-high 27 points.
